HC Deb 20 January 1944 vol 396 c387W
Mr. MacLaren

asked the Minister of Town and Country Planning, if he is aware of the proposal to open cement works near Waterhouses, in North Staffordshire, and of how such an undertaking would destroy the beauty of the surrounding country; and what steps he proposes to take to prevent this.

Mr. W. S. Morrison

Yes, Sir. I am aware that an application for permission for the development referred to has been made to the Interim Development Authority. Since I may have to adjudicate on the matter later, it would be improper for me to comment on the matter at this stage.
